I would never stay in this motel again. We decided to stay an extra night and without a reservation it was the only place we could find. There's a reason for that. They charged almost as much as the one we checked out of when we thought we were going home and then decided to stay.they charged $106. for one... More

Arrived in Seaside late in the day on a road trip, without reservations and some volleyball tournament going on...so we ended up at the Mariner. There were only 3 rooms left when we pulled in - we ended up with a single kitchenette unit for $124.10. It was obvious from the beginning we were getting fleeced. When we first entered... More

East of Seaside beach awaits just the smallest corner of hell, rife with salmon-scented sheets, and just the tiniest pinch of shame. Welcome to the Mariner. Our stay began with what one might consider to be a state of confusion. There were three rooms, each with just enough room for a bed, which was convenient because that's all they contained.... More

this was the worst hotel I've been to. The beds felt like we were sleeping on boards. there was no give in the mattress. the shower didn't even work and this for $95. the room was very musty smelling. there was no screens on the windows then when we tried to open it the window fell in our hands.

Last minute trip to Seaside brought me to the Mariner as there were no rooms available anywhere else. Quick and friendly check-in sent us to room #5 which was very clean, and freshly painted. The bathroom was pretty small, but there was a microwave and fridge in the room. The beds were comfortable and we had a quiet night as... More

Overall the place wasn't bad, it was clean and within walking distance to downtown, and the staff were very friendly and pleasant. The walls are a bit thin and you can hear some of the stuff in the neighbouring rooms but it's kinda muffled. The room has a small microwave and a good size fridge but no coffee maker (coffee...

My husband and I have stayed in a lot of hotels...some resorts, some not so nice. This was the absolute worst room either of us had ever stayed it. We drove to Seaside with our one year old daughter on a whim and ended up spending too much time at the beach so we decided to spend the night. We... More

I don't know what hotel these other people were talking about, but it sure wasn't the mariner in seaside. I was there 2 days ago with my kids, and it was the WORST hotel I've ever stayed in. The entire room smelled like urine and poop. We left to go shopping as soon as we got there and thought maybe... More

During our very recent stay of 2 nights in this motel we found it to be very clean, well kept, and the room was well stocked. The room contained a working fridge and microwave. The NEW management was very friendly, helpful, and attentive to our needs. These new managers are quickly changing the image and coziness of this property, for... More

While the people running this mom & pop motel are friendly enough, this place has all the charm of a trailer park. We were overwhelmed by the musty smell of our rooms, and were amazed at how poorly each room was furnished. It was like they furnished the rooms by visiting garage sales. The hot/cold facets were badly mismatched and... More
